New Free Tutorial, Skinner Blend

I have a new free tutorial for polymer clay on my site. The tutorial explains how to obtain smooth color gradient. This technique is known as two-color Skinner blend. Stay tuned – the next tutorial will be for making a bull’s eye cane and a leaf cane. I already have it in a draft form and shall be able to post it on my web site by the end of the week.

New faux Cloisonne Necklace and Earrings

When it comes to naming my jewelry... I can use some help (to say it politely). I made this set of earrings and a necklace a while ago. Beautiful colors, nice olivine Swarovski crystals... I love this set. Trouble is, I just could not give it a name. I got stuck on “Olive Garden” (yeah, go ahead, laugh!), but without a name I could not list this set. Desperate, I was about to call it “Green Necklace and Earrings” or something like that. Finally after brainstorming it with my kids, we came up with a reasonable version: “Enchanted Forest”...
